[laughter] momentum the big mo's with him. what do you think about that? are they right? >> well, i mean, the president certainly made his base thrilled with his performance at the debate. that was one of the things he needed to do. look, there's too many questions coming at the president's campaign. he needed to settle and calm those fears. yes, he succeeded at. what he did not arguably do at the debate is in any stem the damage that mitt romney inflicted in the first debate, which was to expose that he's not really running publicly with a second term agenda. and that's what independents and a lot of undecided voters are looking at that. in that he sounded like someone who

>>> governor romney lives to fight another day. many of president obama's key supporters voicing their disappointment today that he did not take on governor romney when he had an opportunity. here's some of the headlines. in fact, the "los angeles times" says, quote, obama fans are shocked by mitt romney's dominance in debate.

's lead, mitt romney dancing as fast as he can. do you remember back during the primaries when mitt romney assured republicans that he is severely conservative? it didn't ring true back then but, hey, he was trying. now with the election 29 days away, mitt romney is on the move as a moderate. but can he be credible in this new roll? a brand new gallup poll shows president obama leading by 5 points. meanwhile, a new pew research poll shows romney leading by 4 points. this race is tightening. things are moving, gist like mitt romney. suddenly he loves covering people with pre-existing conditions and suddenly mr. romney is ignoring the fact that his tax plan is a give away to the rich. the only problem, that's not the mr. romney who's running for president and this weekend newt gingrich, one of his top surrogates let the cat out of the bag. >> standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is what mitt romney said. number one, i said today we're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20%, including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, mitt romney, had a pr
and afghanistan. serious news tonight on afghanistan, as mitt romney committed without any qualification to the idea that troops should be withdrawn from afghanistan in 2014. this is a reversal for mitt romney, in terms of his previous stated conditions on that idea. he previously said i don't think you set hard and fast deadlines. that was to abc news on july 29th. i think the biggest mistake he, meaning president obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country i
say the numbers are in their favor. but president obama and governor romney are barnstorming coast to coast in a race against the clock. right now it is 3-2-1 countdown as in 321 hours until the first polls close. meanwhile in the nation's heartland could republican's senate nominee richard murdoch take romney down with him? among undecided suburban women voters in other states. >>> and you have to pull up a chair to see the latest ad from clint eastwood. he is lending his now unmistakable voice to a new tv ad by the country's biggest republican super pac. good morning from chicago. it is 13 days until election day. as we told you, wednesday, october 24, 2012. this is "the daily run-down." i am chuck todd. let's get to the first reads of the morning. president obama and governor romney crisscrossed the country today with a new urgency. though the campaigns are still fighting over a slice of undecided voters, just look at their schedules and it is clear the focus really is more on turning out their own voters. the base voters. the president. he begins a frenetic 48-hour tour which w
came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is the president's response. >> obama: governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where plan
forced, aggressive and challenger in mitt romney. we are gong to get to more and more of the debate tape shortly but we take you to the day after on the campaign trail. first, the president about two and a half nours ago in iowa. >> governor romney has been running around talking about his five-point plan for the economy. here's a tip. usually when a politician tells you he's going to wait until after the election to explain a plan to you they don't have a pleasant surprise in store for you. >> now mitt romney in virginia about 90 minutes ago. >> i love these debates. you know? these things are great. i think it's interesting that the president still doesn't have an agenda for a second term. don't you think that it's time for him to finally put together a vision of what he'd do in the next four years if he were elected? >> as i said, for the next hour, we'll review last night and look at how we move forward to monday's final debate in florida which is on foreign policy. and speaking of foreign affairs, near the end of the long island cage match last night that libya came up and the

, the fireworks predicted on that topic never materialized, megyn, governor romney did not press the administration's handling of libya but did say the president is turning his back on an increasing threat from radical islam around the middle east. the president went on the offense numerous times through the this debate and particularly intense exchange he accused romney of being wrong on foreign policy every time he is offered an opinion. governor romney fired back saying attacking me is not an agenda. as predicted, the debate turned about 15 minutes in to domestic policy and the u.s. economy. governor romney did attack president obama for a lack of leadership on syria. tonight the president reiterating that syrian president bashar assad, his days are numbered a year after saying really the same thing and after more than 30,000 syrians have died there. governor romney, perhaps struggled to put distance between his policy and obama policy saying he clearly did not want to pledge u.s. troops to any operation in syria. there is no political appetite for u.s. intervention in syria.
. in a race that is as tight as it can get. the newest daily tracking poll has romney up 51-45 over president obama. a bigger spread than the real clear politic average of recent national polls that has romney up less than one point. president obama prepped for this in camp david before heading to florida. and romney stayed in florida, near the boca raton site. vice president biden campaigned in the crucial swing state of ohio, making two stops. starting in kansas. the latest two polls ther pollse from suffolk have the race tied at 47-47. 49-48. >> it is great to be back in colorado, god's country. >> bret: paul ryan campaigned in colorado. western part of the state in pueblo and durango. the latest poll there from rasmussen has the romney ryan ticket up 50-46. tuesday romney and ryan travelled together. the obama biden ticket zeros in to dayton, ohio. two weeks and one day to the presidential election. our weekly look at how the electoral college map is shaping up. joining me is karl rove. the former bush senior advisor in new york. with me in florida, democratic strategist joe trippi. look
